    When you put the new one on use stainless steel button head socket cap screws. Not many criminals walk around with allen wrenches. ;)

    just wondering, never thought about someone stealing plates before??? until i read this, does anyone ever look at their plate? if you offered me $1,000 right now I could not tell you my plate number and have dis-assembled and re-assembled this truck inside and out more times than I can count doing mods.

    i would never know if someone stole and switched plates or something like that, I'm asking the LEO guys, do you ever see that happening and what happens to the truck?

    I go to school in Texas and my buddy had cops show up to his house and calls home and what not because his plates ended up on a stolen vehicle. What happened was someone stole the plates off of his truck to put on a stolen vehicle so it would come up clean (in theory, even though the discription of the car would be completely different).
